The actors, who have been dating since last year, were due to make their first public appearance as a couple at Sunday's Bafta Film Awards, but ended up arriving separately.Pattinson, 23, was proudly cheering from the audience when his American girlfriend, 19, was named as the winner of the Bafta Rising Star accolade at the star-studded ceremony at the Royal Opera House.Romance rumours have surrounded the couple since the first Twilight movie came out in late 2008.
The public's intense fascination with their romance preceded nearly every one of their professional endeavors, and even after their split remained a focal point in either star's public image.
Both Kristen and Robert have since executed a clean break from each other, along the way finding love in the arms of others without ever directly bad-mouthing their former beau.
But a second source shoots down any insinuation that the two are an item, telling PEOPLE that “Pattinson has trained with Liebes a few times in Harley’s absence and that s it.” In May, Pattinson and Stewart, 23, called it quits after more than three years of dating, their relationship having weathered intense strain and scrutiny following her fling with her married director, Rupert Sanders.
The two had attempted to patch things up following her cheating scandal, attending Coachella and celebrating her 23rd birthday together before ultimately calling things off.
We are here together and it's a public event but it's not easy.'We have to do all this stuff to avoid attention.'After the Baftas, the couple headed to the Grosvenor House Hotel for the after-party, where they were spotted leaving at a relatively-respectable midnight.
While Stewart attended the Elle Style Awards alone last night, Pattinson was busy working all day on his new film Bel Ami.
They also recently celebrated Stewart’s 23rd birthday together and held hands at Coachella – despite the actress’s cheating scandal with her married director Rupert Sanders last July.
Following the ordeal – which included a public apology from Stewart to Pattinson – the duo reunited less than two months later and appeared to be back to normal.
